Hunters in combat?

How would a good hunter, and I dont mean uncle Bubba who baits deer while getting drunk in a hunting blind. I mean a real hunter who knows how to properly track, stalk, and kill animals efficiently. be when faced with a conventionally trained soldier?

    Solitary snipers don't match well against squads. You might be able to get one before the rest of the soldiers frick up your position. If you think you can out-sneak them by hiding in the woods or urban jungle, they have ways for that too.
    There are a very specific set of circumstances where a solo well-trained marksmen could inflict causalities on an opposing force, and they aren't many and those that can actually perform them are numbered even less.

      You have no idea what you're talking about.

      They aren't going to call of duty take out the entire said squad but most snipers work alone or in pairs, historically. The trick is you use the window were they have no fricking clue where the shot came from to get somewhere else. Preferably somewhere they don't have quick if any access to.

    Traditionally hunters make premier light infantry. The lone sniper fantasy is fantasy, though.

    About the only good side is being able to sometimes hit what they're aiming at, at longer ranges and some degree of familiarity with weapons compared to raw boot-camp weeners.
    Apart from that, humans aren't really like even big apex predators or even dangerous large game. If they're well trained a combat team will be constantly on the scan looking for danger during their patrols, they'll have some body armour which helps a great deal and most importantly- they have a plan when shit starts flying, what to do if someone gets hit and how to counter-attack in response, break contact to bounce out of danger or formulate a quick solution as a team.
    Tracking human beings isn't as hard as a lot of people tend to think it is either. They have typical shoe types, they leave rubbish, they smell different, they poop and take a piss were they hang out and sometimes make a bit of noise so most hunters aren't into that hardball camping for extended periods of time with light, sight, smell and sound lifestyle.

        Only if they're brown, white trafficking gets too much media attention

        Yes, humans leave distinct trails, they kick over things, break foliage, they smell, they don't take their rubbish with them, they light fires, they want shelter from the elements, they smell like deodorant, they piss and shit everywhere. Humans do very specific things in the outdoors that are very obvious and if they can be found, they can be killed

        Animals mostly don't care too much about that kind of thing as long as you're upwind of them, but if I'm actively hunting other humans in a wilderness environment everything they do sticks out like its been painted bright day glow orange. Hunters know how to get into range for a good shot, getting a good shot on an animal is different to getting a good shot on a human being, because you don't want to skyline yourself, you need a way out after taking a shot and if you're going to take return fire you need cover to stop that- that's just not on seasonal hunters check lists for things they have to know

          >he thinks hunting doesn't involve tracking and avoiding other hunters
          ask me how I know you've never been on a public land elk hunt
          >he thinks hunters don't know what sky lining means
          ask me how I know you've never killed anything except maybe birds or a deer in a corn field
          >he thinks hunters dont know ingress and egress
          ask me how I know you live on the east coast and how I know you have never packed 500lbs of meat or any amount of gear any significant distance up or down a hill.

          ask me how i know you are a fat autist with far more money in gear than you have miles under your boots. the one thing that larpers cannot understand: gear doesn't matter if you don't train with it. Being someone who gets your boots and pack dirty on a regular basis will keep you alive longer than any nods will help a fatass. i would bet money that you've never dug a hole to shit in once in your entire life.

    A trained soldier isn't supposed to engage the enemy alone and does so only in an environment they control or will be going into.

    1v1, Hunter is getting fricked because he's not trained for direct combat. A Hunter is more like a sniper.

      To be fair, Russian infantry soldiers were just conscripts thrown in by the horde with little training and Simo is a very good shot.

    The Red Baron was a celebrated hunter before becoming the top ww1 ace. Medieval knights hunted. Hunters were the top light infantry in the line musket days.

    he would die soon because his skills are unnedeed in modern wars. you're not stalking your enemy, you're staying in a trench waiting for the next mobick assault.

    not very well

    a hunter's outdoor life skills including shooting are useful for a soldier but outside of something like 19th century old west's indian wars(that were fought in wilderness) and such he is otherwise pretty useless without more training

    Against a single average soldier? Hunter wins 9/10, competency in fieldcraft means he'll be able to get a well aimed shot on the soldier.

    Against a unit as small as a fireteam? No chance. The fireteam will be able to apply enough suppressing fire that they can move almost unrestricted and kill the hunter.

    The Roman’s used to make city raised recruits go to camps in remote areas to when them off city life. In our current society, most of us, on average, are so reliant on technology and modern comforts that FOBs need to resemble shopping malls. I think any outdoorsman has a huge advantage in this day and age, where those skills are usually only learned from people who go out of their way to learn them. How many 18 year old kids can tie more then 4 knots, build shelter, and have emotional control lost in nature?
